opportunity to change the o'country. larry cohen on harry reiding filibuster cave. >>> women get overdue recognition to serve in combat. the right wing is freaking out. former marine goldie taylor is here to put them in their place. >>> thanks for watching. it's time to wake up, america. got to pay attention to this one. the republican attempt to steal the next presidential election, it has hit full throttle. this is the latest poster boy for republican vote rigging. virginia state senator bill carricko. now, today carrico advanced his bill in the republican-led senate to change the way electoral votes are counted in the state. virginia democratic state senator john s. edwards told me on my radio show that democrats were completely blindsided by this move. >> it was a complete underhanded sneak attack on not only democrats but also the people of virginia because if people had had no prior warning this would happen there, have been no committee discussions on this, no hearings on this, and it runs contrary to the courtesies and traditions of the senate of virginia. >> they should be no co
't cancel that project. can you work with us? michael cohen phoned me up the next day. can we cut $40 million out of this project? it was one person more responsible than any others, it's tony irons, was the architect that was responsible for the revitalization of city hall who came to my office and said, we cannot abandon this. we can't walk away from this project. we have an opportunity to really take a lot of our values and principles, particularly raising the bar as we did as a city on our green building standards, mandating the most aggressive green building standards for privat
has new details on steve cohen. melissa: you are always controversial. charlie: here is what is interesting about steve cohen. in february, as they see faces a window of redemptions. here is what we know. fac officials are screaming to prevent massive reductions. they are currently contacting and holding one-on-one meetings with investors. they are essentially saying that despite everything, the investigation -- a wells notice has been given. despite all of that, they think that steve cohen we'll be okay. they may get a large fine. they think they are facing charges. they will not be indicted. it will not be a criminal case. keep your money with us. the bottom line is this, you do not know until february. investors essentially hate this type of controversy. some very large investors have put holds on the stocks. i can also tell you, steve cohen and these guys are very aggressive. they are out there trying to get large investors to stay with it. they will come out after the story. these are different one-on-one meetings. this is crisis mode. they think there is a very good lik
-public information with his boss, the billionaire hedge fund manager steve cohen of sac capital. martoma's big tip allegedly taking place during a 20-minute phone call to cohen the day before the news of the drug failing a key trial became public. sac sold its position before that public announcement netting the firm a profit and avoiding losses totaling $276 million. sac declined comment on today's arraignment and they claim they acted appropriately and are cooperating with the government. martoma is the fifth sac employee to be charged with securities fraud while working at the hedge fund. one other has been named as a co-conspirator. martoma also seemed critical to securing what many believe is the government's ultimate catch, mr. cohen. because of the phone call that he made to mr. cohen in july of 2008. unlike three other former sac employees though, he has refused to cooperate or strike a deal maintaining all the while that he is innocent. now today's arraignment should be quick. basically mr. martoma will enter his plea and then possibly the judge will likely set a schedule for discovery or
talked about staking her dog jiggy to andy cohen's show "watch what happens live." >> jiggy was slurping from -- ice cube from a vodka tonic. >> andy cohen is a bad influence. >> jiggy was so jilled, he would fall asleep.
by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob gates, re-appointed by president obama in 2009. and chuck hagel is a republican senator from nebraska. the republican committee is not jumping up and down celebrating. today, they released a statement about serious concerns that hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues. republican senator graham got even more specific. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards israel in our nation's history. he said you should negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, he has long cut his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president, to those of us that support. >> he means they have this to say about the conservative movement, america, the next chapter. chuck hagel writes, so why did we invade iraq? i believe it is the triumph, arrogance and incompetent that took america into this war of choice. chuck hagel, it should be said did not begin his career as a foreign policy apos
cohen was a republican senator before he was bill clinton's secretary of defense. >> i think he'll face the same challenge in terms of people on the democratic side saying, hey, wait, we've got some pretty talented people that are -- could step in in a moment's notice and fill that spot, and the republicans will say why are you helping out a democratic administration? >> reporter: one key republican already is challenging hagel. >> i am concerned about many of the comments that he made and has made like reference to, quote, jewish lobby, which i don't believe exists. i believe a pro-israel lobby exists. >> reporter: others insist hague sel not anti-israel. >> he belongs to a tough-minded in this case republican view of israel that, in fact, accepts the reality that while the united states and israel are very close allies and will remain close allies, their views on every issue cannot be expected to coincide. >> reporter: and critics in the gay and lesbian community have turned around their opposition to hagel. in 1998 hagel opposed james hormel, an openly gay man, to an ambassador's pos
, as richard cohen notes in "the washington post" nothing hagel has said about israel is not said in the israeli press on a daily basis. trust me, by the "wall street journal" standards israeli media would be deeply anti-semitic. lost perhaps in the discussion over hagel's position on israel is one of the main reasons he was nominated in the first place. >> most importantly, chuck knows that war is not an abstraction. he knows that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> a decorated war veteran reportedly requested to be sent to vietnam. hagel spoke to the library of congress in 2002 about how his military service had informed his world view. >> someone needs to represent that perspective in our government as well. the people in washington make the policy, but it's the little guys who come back in the body bag. >> as president obama attempts to put his next cabinet together, republicans seem to have developed an acute case of goldilocks syndrome. susan rice was too much of a loyalist, and republ
. for the record redoing third event is coming near. >> and also eliot cohen is in raise the intellectual godfather of this book. his book says syrian command. his book supreme command is the best single thing ever written on how president should talk to the military. >> fantastic. autonomy said that. >> inÉs said. [laughter] >> my question coming out of the strategicprogram is two pronged mlb on this i have your book yet, so i hope you have a nerdy answer this. but the very well-publicized job done in afghanistan appeared to asia, what gives you hope when it comes to future generalship and what makes you despair? >> second part is easier to answer. a lot of things make me despair. what gives me hope that it's going to some perverse, but it's not. the defense budget is going to be cut and let us cut as the british famously said we have no money anymore, so now we must need. we have a military that is at a fire hose of money turned on the last 10 years and intelligence community community as well. they were basically given money and told her to spend it through the we have a generation of officers
william cohen. if you remember, a republican who served under the president -- democratic administration of president clinton. now, if people here in the building say, look, you know, chuck hagel would be fine for us, including military uniformed service members because they understand, as you just pointed out, that the white house is going to be pulling the strings, turning the screws no matter who is the secretary of defenses. republican or democrat. i do want to set the record straight a little bit on this debate over the surge. now, senator hagel in the confirmation hearing said that 1,200 americans were killed during the 18-month surge operation. that's true. 1,200 americans died, but the actual number of combat deaths was 942. what's important to point out is that the 12 months before the surge began the total number of service members killed in iraq was 820. now, this is the most important figure i think if you are going to argue was the surge a success or not? that is the fact that the 12-month period following the surge operation there were 313 american deaths and the next year
to the clinton administration when president clinton invited william cohen, a republican to be defense secretary. then the obama administration, president obama asked robert gates, a republican to be defense secretary. then there was leon panetta. and now another republican, chuck hagel. what's wrong with democrats being defense secretary? >> right. actually, just as an historical footnote, roberts used to be a republican. you know, i think that there's a sort of feeling that each one of these can be justified. i think president clinton and cohen had a good relationship, as does president obama and senator hagel. in gates' instance, that made a lot of sense. so much was going on that you didn't want to have an immediate change in the defense. but that is true, that it looks like democrats always want to appoint republican secretaries of defense. also if you look at the history of the independent councils, they have almost all been republicans. and as a democrat i sometimes get frustrated, too. we can't find an independent council in our own party. i can understand the frustration but the preside
the playing field? >> for us it's always about what's in folks' hearts. we have cohen who gets an a on our report card, and we have a new senator like tim scott who is black gets an f every year. when i look at senator scott, i'm very glad that going into the 150th celebration, if you will. of the eman pags prok clags we have one black senator. we should have at least 10. when i look at him, you know, i say quite frankly what wuch my old coaches said about me in a sport i wasn't so good aat. he has nothing but potential. there's nothing but room to improve. we would hope that he would not continue to get fs on the naacp report card? >> is that because he's a republican or what's behind it? >> no. we have republicans that believe in civil rights. unfortunately, he's not one of them, and unfortunately his party as you know has really gone after so-called rhinos as they call them, these republican whoe believe in civil rights again and again. so, you know, for instance, you take senator specter there recently. he was very good on the same sorts of justice issues i was talking about. you know,
. arizona put the most restrictions into effect, seven, and elizabeth cohen went back to texas where roe vs. wade, well, the decision began. we'll learn more about the decision fight today. >> reporter: roe vs. wade originated in texas and 40 years later the situation here and in much of the u.s. is complex. on the one hand, the governor has made this vow -- >> my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> reporter: on the other hand, this is the reality -- hi, it's elizabeth at cnn. >> great. come on in, ma'am. i'm at the whole woman's health clinic austin where seven women will have abortions today. >> any more ultrasounds? >> i don't think we have any more. >> rorter: amy started whole women's health ten years ago, and her business has grown. she has five clinics in texas, offering gynecology care that includes providing abortions to 9,000 women a year. >> my main goal is provide an oasis for her where she feels safe, comfortable, at peace. >> reporter: the entire state 27,470 women received abortions in 2011. in the
. secretary cohen is out there now. i came back with the following set of impressions from it. first of all, they are very concerned about what is going on in iraq. they understand about the problems of the weapons of mass destruction and the fact that they do threaten them. it is less visible, i think, than a cross border threat. second, they are fully convinced that this crisis has been created by saddam hussein. they are concerned about the iraqi people, as are we, which is why we support this oil for food plan that we wrote originally with the resolution and is now being proposed to be expanded by kofi annan. they also preferred diplomatic moves, but they also understand that should there be consequences, there will be responsible for the grave consequences. i feel confident of their support. they state they have domestic audiences and they state their support for their own purposes. i do feel that should we use force, they will be helpful to us. i think that they also understand the dangers. it is not quite the same situation as when saddam hussein invaded kuwait and there were six mon
's bring in panel defense panel. lisa cohen. fox news legal analyst. this is all the work of mayor bloomberg. also known as nanny bloomberg. he loves to tell everybody what to do. what to eat and drink because is he smarter than everybody else. has he now crossed the line. 16-ounce sugary drink is banned? >> i mean, there is really no link between the soft drink -- let's say that soft drinks. there is lots of other drinks that are sugary but aren't banned. talking about sodas. what about vitamin drinks? there is so much flaw in the ban to begin with. it really doesn't rise to the level of legitimacy for it actually to hold water. >> gregg: this law when you look at it appears to be as fickle and fictitious. for example it doesn't include grocery stores. it doesn't include convenience stores. mercedes pointed out 7/11 home of the big gup is not included. unsweetened juice, milk braced drinks. doesn't the law demand fairness in equity? >> can i see what those points, why there is a disparity between the small businesses and the larger 7/11s. if someone doesn't want to buy it. if the
cohen and kate knots, our transplant coordinators. mary grace hands sell, operating room nurse manager. jon: if you want to continue watching the news conference we'll have it streaming live on foxnews.com. doctors at john hopkins hospital in baltimore announcing they have down a double arm transplant on a very brave army soldier, brandon marrocco. he was the first american soldier to survive the loss of two arms and two legs. it happened in an ied explosion in iraq. it is an experimental surgery but doctors say he will be discharged from the hospital today after they transplanted donor arms. they hope that they will in essence take and that he will be able to gain more utility from those transplanted arms. it is a phenomenal story and he is a very brave veteran. patti ann: just incredible. right now the egyptian government is dealing with another day of violent protests. at least 52 people are dead and the head of the army is warning that the political turmoil is putting the state on the verge of collapse. president mohammed morsi declaring a state of emergency which includes a curfew

the top of this morning by mr. cohen -- the op ed by mr. cohen. we will discuss the accuracy, historical and artistically inside, but does a masterful job in suggesting in the real world there are no right angles and no easy answers to very difficult situations. that, to me, was a great service. >> i also liked the movie. it was very entertaining, but it is a movie, and there were some things i really liked and things i did not like. i did not like, for example, the portrayal of the enhanced interrogation techniques. i did not like the fact that it made a false link between torture and intelligence successes. i also think torture does not work, and our programs work because it was not tortured. there were other things i liked about the movie. i liked the fact that it conveyed that this was a 10-year marathon parian rather than a sprint -- rather than a sprint by a president, and the agency was the focus of this effort and succeeded because of the commitment, dedication, and tenacity of its people. i like the fact that it showed the enhanced interrogation program had something to do with
that his critics have been referencing. this is from "the wall street journal." host: richard cohen weighs in in his piece in "the washington post." host: rebecca in ohio. thank you for waiting. caller: good morning. how well is he being vetting? i have watched him on tv. he is anti-semitic. i am concerned that the government does nothing for the american people. they don't have to participate in the obamacare. but they are making decisions for lives. what is theng -- regard for the american military from chuck hagel? host: what have you been watching from the former senator? caller: i watch on fox news and msnbc. it isn't just for secretary of defense. he has been a senator for a lot of years. he is not new on this page. host: her comments about how he views men and women in the military. guest: he was a prominent member on the senate foreign relations committee. i struggle with people who throw around terms saying he is anti- semitic. i do not know if most people would be comfortable saying that about chuck hagel. i think the term jewish lobby, a is a phrase he used in a quotation, use p
in our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. hopeful for the future. so rare that he has been able to go through successfully this surgery. what does it entail? >> it entails a very long surgery, where doctors have to tediously reconnect muscles, tendons, nerves, blood vessels. i was talking to a doctor, not at hopkins, but somewhere else, who has done a similar one, done the same thing. he said what really made him sweat was the blood vessels. if you don't do it just right, that limb isn't going to get any blood and it will just die. and so that's why these hopkins doctors, they train on cadavers for the past couple of months. they worked on cadavers to practice before they did the real thing. so it is just amazing that this can work at all. and he mentioned that in the one arm, which has -- they transplanted more, he had, that's not his real elbow on that arm, he doesn't have much motion and hopefully after lots of physical therapy that will happen. >> what i love about the story is his spirit and his hope. and i want our viewers to take a listen to what he said what he's mo
senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. what did doctors find in this new study? >> this is fascinating. doctors autopsied hundreds of men. they found the ones who were on beta blockers, very common blood pressure medications, had fewer signs of alzheimer's in their brains. fewer lesions. less atrophy. they think it might possibly be because it's good for the brain to have lower blood pressure. it sort of takes some of the stress off the brain. maybe that's why they had those findings. >> so explain exactly what a beta blocker is. does it mean people should routinely be taking beta blockers if they suspect they could come down with dementia or alzheimer's down the road? >> beta blockers block the effect of adrenaline which is what helps bring your blood pressure down. doctors said absolutely not, you should not be on a beta blocker unless you need it. if you don't need the beta blocker, it might cause your more medical problems then you started out with. now, if you do have high blood pressure, you can ask your doctor, hey, i'd like to start on a beta blocker, le
